RTE 25% Faclitation
Under RTE-25% Campaign, we are advocating for the proper implementation the provision of reservation of 25% seats in private schools under Right to Education Act and facilitating underprivileged children to get admission in these schools at Ranchi. As per the proper and detailed study done by Pratigya, the abysmal condition of the implementation of this provision and lack of awareness in the marginalized community has led to just 1.6% admissions of BPL children against 25% available seats in last 3 years where as 2.4% admissions against 25% in the academic year 2013-14. Along with policy level advocacy to get the policy level gaps filled in Jharkhand, pertaining to this provision of the RTE Act, our volunteers are working in more than 40 slums and 20 villages of Ranchi, facilitating free admissions of children from poor community in various schools as per the provision of RTE Act.
Our achievements in last 6 years:
Admission facilitation to over 3,000 children in CBSE Schools under 25% BPL reservation as per RTE ACT.
We had filed a PIL in the High Court of Jharkhand regarding the issue and won the case against the ongoing system. The High Court ordered the state to smoothen up the process so as to give access to the BPL children in private schools. Moreover, the court has also ordered the private schools to reserve the 25% seats exclusively for the needy children in their schools.
Pratigya has been running a helpline number and working as a facilitating agency for the various needy guardians who want to get their children admitted in the private schools under this Act.
